Ohio Bill Orders Doctors to “Reimplant Ectopic Pregnancy,” Which Is Impossible

by pregnancy journalist
Doctors are warning that part of an anti-abortion bill introduced in the Ohio state legislature is medically impossible. Ohio passed a six-week abortion ban last year, but the law was blocked by a federal judge. More than 20 state representatives have since introduced House Bill 413, which bans abortion outright and defines a fertilized egg as an “unborn child.” The bill would require doctors to take “all possible steps to preserve the life” of an unborn child, including “attempting to reimplant an ectopic pregnancy into the woman’s uterus.” Doctors who do not perform the non-existent procedure would face charges of […]

Ohio Bill: Doctors Must Reimplant Ectopic Pregnancy or Face Charges

by pregnancy journalist
Ohio lawmakers have introduced an abortion ban bill that would require doctors to “reimplant an ectopic pregnancy” by moving a fertilized embryo into a woman’s uterus in a procedure that experts say is medically impossible unless they want to be charged with “abortion murder.” The proposal marks the second time doctors have tried telling proponents of the bill that the idea of moving an embryo is medically impossible, reports The Guardian.  “I don’t believe I’m typing this again but, that’s impossible,” wrote Ohio obstetrician and gynecologist Dr. David Hackney on Twitter, where he shared a copy of the bill. “We’ll […]

Bill orders doctors to ‘reimplant ectopic pregnancy’ or face ‘abortion murder’ charges | US news | The Guardian

by pregnancy journalist
A bill to ban abortion introduced in the Ohio state legislature requires doctors to “reimplant an ectopic pregnancy” into a woman’s uterus, or face charges of “abortion murder”. A procedure to reimplant an ectopic pregnancy does not exist in medical science, and this is the second time practicing obstetricians and gynecologists have tried to tell the Ohio legislators that the idea is currently medically impossible. The move comes amid a wave of increasingly severe anti-abortion bills introduced across much of the country as conservative Republican politicians seek to ban abortion and force a legal showdown on abortion with the supreme […]

Ectopic Pregnancy Is Part Of The Abortion Debate Because Pro-Birthers Are Rabid Beasts

by pregnancy journalist
Sigh. Here we go again. Or maybe not again, but rather, here we still are. Still arguing that a woman’s health and life are insignificant. That a woman has no right to make choices about what gets poked and prodded into her. That she has no say in what happens to her reproductive system. That ironically (and absurdly), those who claim to be “pro-life” are willing to risk a woman’s life by denying her a critical medical procedure that could save not only the mother herself, but also possibly save her chances to have children in the future. This is […]

’90 Day Fiance’: Laura Swears On Her Son’s Life About Her Ectopic Pregnancy, On A Vacation In Ecuador

by pregnancy journalist
We have seen 90 Day Fiance couple Aladin and Laura involved in some pretty petty issues. How can we forget the great vibrator situation and how Aladin completely freaked out about it! Well, this time, things have escalated to a whole new level. According to Laura, Aladin blocked her, and she was desperate to get his attention. As for her pregnancy, we can’t call it completely fake, and we can’t say that Lara was totally honest about it. Sounds puzzling, right? Let’s take a look at what’s going on in detail. 90 Day Fiance: Laura In Ecuador Right Now talker_of_shits […]

Woman who had her womb removed nearly died because of a rare ectopic pregnancy | Daily Mail Online

by pregnancy journalist
A woman nearly died after she became pregnant despite having her womb removed six years earlier. In a case believed to be only the third of its kind ever recorded, the 32-year-old went to hospital in Ethiopia with abdominal pain and vomiting. She was confused, had a rapid heart rate, laboured breathing and a swollen torso, and doctors realised she had gone into shock because of massive blood loss. Medics found an embryo, which didn’t survive, had been growing for 13 weeks on the ‘stump’ which was left of her cervix after the uterus above it had been removed. A […]

The Century-Old ‘Science Fiction’ Behind Ohio Rep’s Bill Covering Nonexistent Ectopic Pregnancy Treatment – Rewire.News

by pregnancy journalist
Ohio Rep. John Becker (R) drew widespread criticism last week for an anti-abortion bill that would allow insurance coverage for the “reimplantation” of an ectopic pregnancy into the uterus—a treatment that does not exist. Physicians and pro-choice advocates have called the line in the bill “science fiction,” but Becker told Rewire.News he does have sources to back up his claim: two articles—one more than 100 years old—with anecdotal stories from physicians who claim that “reimplanting” ectopic pregnancies into the uterus is possible. HB 182, which Becker first introduced in April, seeks to ban almost all insurance coverage of abortions in cases […]

Ohio abortion, ectopic pregnancy bill: This Ohio anti-abortion bill says that ectopic pregnancies can be moved to the uterus — but that isn’t scientifically possible – CBS News

by pregnancy journalist
An Ohio state representative introduced a new bill last month, which aims to prohibit insurance coverage of abortions that occur where the mother’s life is not “endangered if the fetus were carried to term.” The bill includes exceptions, including one for a procedure that does not exist. GOP Rep. John Becker introduced House Bill 182, which allows for two situations where insurers could offer coverage for abortion services. One is a “procedure, in an emergency situation, that is medically necessary to save the pregnant woman’s life.” The other, the bill says, is a procedure for an ectopic pregnancy, “that is […]

‘It’s been horrific’: Helen Flanagan rushed to hospital over fears of an ectopic pregnancy

by pregnancy journalist
Soap star Helen Flanagan and her partner Scott Sinclair have just announced the very happy news that they are expecting another baby – a brother or sister for two year old daughter Matilda. Despite her obvious joy at adding to her family, actress Helen Flanagan, 27, has revealed the tough time she’s had in her second pregnancy so far thanks to the same crippling morning sickness that has struck the Duchess of Cambridge down in hers. “It’s going well now but it’s been a really difficult first trimester. It’s been horrific,” Helen told OK! magazine. “I have just just been […]
